The sushi pizza was delicious. We had the truffle tempura portobella mushrooms and I was disappointed. I could not taste the truffle. I had the bento box with chicken and it came cold but my sister had the ramen and my husband the salmon an they said they were delicious.

They should fill the front first because walking into an empty restaurant was disconcerting. Also they should keep large families with lots of small children in corner areas not middle of the restaurant. Other than that, the food was amazing, service was more than perfect, and the price would have been good even without a Groupon. If the entire ambiance was how the porch looked (we were just outside the porch area, no seats on porch) it would have been wonderful. We would consider going again. 5 stars for food and service. 5 for BYOB. 4.5 for price and food creativity (4 for non-Groupon). 3 for ambiance. Overall 4.25

Food was "okay," nothing great. Have had much better sushi pizza elsewhere. Bento box was fine but again, have had better elsewhere. Waiter forgot to put in our appetizer order to start so it was quite a long wait at 8:30 p.m. to start eating.

There are so few good restaurants in the "hood", thank goodness for Fatty Fish! It's a real keeper. Not only is the fish delish, but the meat and veggie dishes are as well. Not only is Fatty Fish our go to local restaurant, but we had a family reunion brunch there recently. Chef Roy went out of his way to make it a wonderful, delicious event.

This has become our go-to place on a nearly-every-week basis. Excellent food and service, as well as excellent value. Maybe not the place for a "romantic dinner"--it doesn't have that ambiance--but it's pleasant. We eat here when we want a good meal out, and also bring friends when a casual atmosphere is desired.

I have heard wonderful things about Fatty Fish, and finally got to go for Friday lunch with a friend. Our reservation was for 12:15, and there was one other table being served in our dining room. The service was very efficient, and non-intrusive. The plates of food were beautifully presented. We each ordered a vegetarian dish with green curry sauce with an added protein. I selected salmon, and was pleased to see they listed the weight for all added proteins (4 oz.). Along with the main course we each got a salad. It was beautiful and fresh. I appreciated the size of the servings. The portions were generous, but not overwhelming. As we left the restaurant we walked through two other dining rooms with diners. I have already told friends about Fatty Fish, and look forward to going back.

I've been to this place twice, each time I went it was amazing. There's was nothing I didn't like! For appetizer I got sushi pizza, and for my entree I got the salmon with coconut rice. AMAZING. My first time there I got the boneless spare ribs , and the cola chicken. The place itself is small, but they have an open room outside. I highly suggest it!!

I don't eat out much on the Upper East Side yet wanted to meet a friend for a quiet, catch-up dinner on the east side. Time Out had given Fatty Fish a good review, and the restaurant lived up to the acclaim. The food was very good, fresh, flavorful, with attractive presentation; service was unobtrusive and attentive; we sat inside while most diners were out in the garden, so it was nice and quiet and very pleasant. Thanks for a delicious meal with the right kind of ambiance to have some serious conversations.

I thought it was sushi but the menu had changed in March and I didn't look at the menu. The sushi pizza was excellent. Since I was expecting sushi my evaluation of the rest of the menu was that it was food food but fusion and not what I had expected. My error.

First time there, definitely not the last. Everything was excellent, especially the food! Service top notch, ambiance quite nice, and noise level very manageable for our table conversation. The oysters, edaname, and pork bun appetizers were great. Crab cake and salmon main courses were also top-notch. Looking forward to returning to Fatty Fish very soon!

I've been to this restaurant before and have always been satisfied with their food. Tonight we both ordered their salmon entree with honey ginger sauce (I had mine on the side), coconut rice and spinach. This was the best salmon I've had in a long time and the presentation was also excellent. The wait service here is also very good. I'm looking forward to going back for more.
First impressions matter!
I had a wonderful experience at Fatty Fish. It was my first visit, so I was a little leery of my choice for dinner reservations. I was entertaining a relative I've never formally met and wanted to make a good first impression. Fatty Fish did not disappoint! The food tasted fresh, delicious and the presentations beautifully done. We were there for happy hour, so the drinks were half price (and delicious)! I will definitely return!

Where surprised to see how empty this place was compared to our many times we have been there. Seems restaurant lost "it's chore business". Food we selected was good and well prepared. The servers were attentive. We still regret lack of sushi/sashimi offerings. Need a vigorous shake up. Please do not let this place go down the drain.

It was a nice venue with an enclosed, temperature controlled yard. Simply decorated. We were skeptical upon our arrival, because there were only two other people in the entire restaurant, but it got busier shortly after. The wait staff seemed to be a little inexperienced and nervous, but friendly and cordial.
We had the Memorial Day special Asian clam bake, which was delicious. It had a nice sized lobster and shrimps, clams, muscles, potatoes and Chinese sausage. The accompanying ginger butter was amazing. We also had the shishito peppers and the dumpling appetizers, both were delicious and well made. The sangria was good as well. Overall, we had a good experience. We will definitely be back.

Met up with a few friends at Fatty Fish for a get-together. The wait staff was great! They were very accommodating when we were running late and did not rush us at all. Food was fantastic, as always. The bring-your-own wine is a great option as well.
Overall, a great experience

Tried the new ramen seafood dish and was disappointed. They initially forgot the noodles and we sent it back. When the dish returned with noodles the amount of seafood in it was not on par with the price of the dish. Perhaps this was due to the fact it was Mother's Day and the B team chef was in house. We go to this place often this is the first time I was disappointed.
I found this hidden gem at the last minute since my original pick was not able to accommodate 11 people... and boy, am I lucky that things went as it did. The food was excellent and I highly recommend this restaurant if you want to dine as a group or for dates. They even have an enclosed garden area at the back if you want that outdoorsy feel. I would have to give this place an overall rating of 95 out of 100. 2 thumbs up.
